"Do to others whatever you would have them do to you." Matthew 7:12a
I know anyone who has been in Sunday school or church for any time at all has heard this verse many times over. It's actually pretty well-known in the secular world, too. Sadly, though the practice of this verse has fallen by the wayside in our culture. It's a "me, me, me" world out there. It seems like it is getting worse daily, too, as the economy worsens. It's so easy to become selfish and inward when it seems the world is taking and taking and taking some more.
But I don't think Jesus' words here were based on circumstances. It's very clear that He meant for us to do this ALWAYS.
My offering to God: I will perform a kind deed for someone today.
